Comfort Maximized – From New Plants to Furnace Service12/11/2015 With cooler temperatures settled in and days that seem like there’s barely any daylight, it can be tough to always feel like your home is a comfortable place to be. That extends far beyond doing annual furnace service too, because there are a variety of things you can do to help make your home feel comfy even when your furnace is operating at its peak. Here are a couple that we find particularly helpful here in Chatsworth: Seal air leaks. Air leaks, whether they’re around your windows or your doors, may mean a lot of air is sneaking out of your home. And, the air that you’ve just paid to be heated or cooled is going outside as well. There are a host of choices that can help you close those gaps, from weatherstripping to caulking, and they are fairly simple fixes for homeowners to handle themselves. Swap your furnace filter. This is one of the most crucial things you can do to not only increase your furnace’s efficiency, but also to help save you on your bills. Plus, you don’t need to have your furnace service technician to do it, you can do it yourself. It’s usually recommended to switch your furnace filter every one or two months to get the most out of its capabilities, but some may last even longer. Buy plants. Indoor plants can leave you with a variety of comforts for your home. Not only are they visually pleasing, they could possibly improve your indoor air quality as well because plants absorb a host of contaminants that are emitted from a host of common household cleaners, paints and other products. Furnace service. This should be something that you’re already doing, but it never hurts to get a reminder. Having furnace service completed annually helps make sure that your furnace is in working-order, and if there’s a need for repairs, those can be fixed so your comfort isn’t conceded. It doesn’t have to feel tough to keep a comfortable home when winter sets in.
